Rangers | Delino DeShields making progress

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:51:39 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) took a scheduled day off Monday, June 29, from his rehab stint at Triple-A Round Rock. He served as the designated hitter in two games over the weekend. He is scheduled to play in the outfield for the Express Tuesday, June 30, but manager Jeff Banister said he does not want to rush DeShields, a speed player returning from a hamstring issue.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields will not come off the 15-day disabled list until at least Friday, so FantasyScore players will want to wait until the weekend to let him prove his health and play without any setbacks.

Rangers | Delino DeShields close to rehab assignment

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 15:23:04 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) will work out for the third straight day Friday, June 26, and he could begin a rehab assignment Saturday, June 27, if everything goes according to plan. The earliest DeShields could return from the disabled list would be Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) had become a valuable fantasy baseball asset with regular playing time, mainly because of his speed atop the Texas order. However, when he returns, Josh Hamilton (hamstring) is likely to be back, as well, further complicating DeShields' path to consistent playing time. For now, DeShields should be held onto in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 15:00:33 -0700

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has been a valuable fantasy baseball commodity this year because of his speed, especially when hitting atop the Rangers lineup and playing regularly.

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 16:14:26 -0700

Rangers | Leonys Martin out vs. lefty

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 13:39:22 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher Wednesday, June 3. OF Delino DeShields Jr. is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) and Martin are likely to be in some sort of platoon in center field as long as Josh Hamilton is healthy and playing regularly in left. While DeShields was impressive last month with regular playing time, he could struggle to become a value play on FantasyScore tonight while facing the always tough Sale.

Sat, 30 May 2015 14:08:50 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is out of the lineup Saturday, May 30, against a left-handed starter. OF Delino DeShields Jr. is in the lineup in his place.
